School of ARCHITECTURE taster days 2018
Tuesday 24th April (for year 12 at time of event)
Tuesday 30th October (for year 12 or 13 at time of event)
9.30am - 4pm
Suitable for students studying a range of subjects but with a real passion for pursuing Architecture at degree level.
The University of Reading opened its new School of Architecture in 2016. The school enhances the University's world class reputation for research and teaching relating to the built environment. If you are interested in studying for a degree in Architecture, we would welcome your application for one of our Taster Days, where you will have the opportunity to develop the skills needed to be successful as a student of Architecture.
We will look at how to think three dimensionally and how to represent buildings, spaces and places through drawing. A workshop session will introduce students to architectural drawing skills, looking at ways to sketch buildings, how to observe architectural details and start to draw the world around us from an architect's perspective. This session will also help students develop material for a portfolio for application to the course.
Throughout the day, students will have the opportunity to meet staff from the department, view the campus and teaching buildings, experience our facilities, and learn more about student life here at the University of Reading.
This Taster Day will take place in the School of Architecture's newly refurbished building at our London Road campus.
